They’re on their way back! And oh, are the demands ever growing.
Girl Scout cookies have become something of a season unto themselves, kind of like the holiday season for merchants, the football postseason for college and NFL junkies, and March Madness for the basketball aficionados.
Seminole County Girl Scout Troops 40310 and 40437 are happy to announce that cookie sales will begin – just a little over two short weeks from now – in February. Cookie booths dates and locations will be announced in the coming week in the Donalsonville News. There will be eight varieties to choose from this season and box prices will range from four to six dollars.
New this year, refreshed packaging box designs will reflect the amazing experiences cookie earnings make possible for girls. Troops learn about entrepreneurship, including skills for handling money, public speaking and decision making.
The Girl Scouts tout each cookie purchase as “an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow,” a release says. Purchase proceeds stay local.
Highlighted on the packaging are camping, canoeing, space science exploration, robot design and action in communities.
